Marvel: Iron Fist



In Iron Fist: The Living Weapon, Iron Fist is approached by a young monk named Pei, who tells him to return to K'un-Lun. Upon returning, Iron Fist discovers the city in ruins and Lei Kung dead at the hands of the One, a chi-powered robot who believed itself to be Danny's father Wendell Rand. Iron Fist is defeated by the One, but is rescued by his childhood friend Sparrow and the One's creator Fooh, who nurse him back to health and warn him that the One and Davos were working together to turn New York into New K'un-Lun. During Iron Fist's and the One's second confrontation, the One opens an artificial portal between Earth and the Heavens in an attempt to retrieve Wendell's deceased wife Heather Rand from the afterlife, the but Xian fire god Zhu Rong emerges in Manhattan to punish the mortals for upsetting the universal order. By focusing his chi energy into his fist and launching himself into Zhu Rong, Iron Fist defeats the fire god. Meanwhile, Davos attempts to take the power of the Iron Fist from a reborn Shou-Lou, but is stopped by Pei, who gains the power of the Iron Fist to defeat Davos and revive Shou-Lou, naming his adolescent reborn form "Gork". As the youngest person to ever bear the mark of the Iron Fist, Pei is subsequently taken in by Danny as his ward.[42] In the Marvel NOW! era, Iron Fist rejoins Luke Cage as the Heroes For Hire, having been employed by Boomerang to arrest his former colleagues in the Sinister Six.[43]




Marvel: Iron Fist



Plunging his fists into the molten heart of the dragon Shou-Lao the Undying infused the dragon's superhuman energy into Rand. This, along with being trained by Lei Kung the Thunderer, gave Rand the power of the Iron Fist, allowing him to summon and focus his chi energy (also called natural energy or life force energy) to enhance his natural abilities to extraordinary levels. His strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, reflexes and senses can all be greatly intensified, almost comparable to superhuman levels.


He is able to concentrate his own chi and the superhuman energy from Shou-Lao's heart into his hand, with it manifesting as a supernatural glow around his hand and fist. So concentrated, this "iron fist" can strike with superhuman hardness and impact, while his hand becomes impervious to pain and injury. Some of Rand's feats with the "iron fist" is knocking out Luke Cage,[volume & issue needed] knocking out a drunken Hercules,[volume & issue needed] taking down Black Panther (wearing his vibranium suit),[volume & issue needed] and taking down the S.H.I.E L.D Helicarrier with a single punch.[volume & issue needed] However, summoning the power required by this feat leaves Rand physically and mentally drained, unable to repeat the act for a time, as long as an entire day in certain instances, though after years of using the ability, it has become less draining.[citation needed] He can focus his chi inward to heal himself or outward to heal others of injury, as well as to give himself psychic senses and to telepathically fuse his consciousness with another person when looking directly into the pupil of his eye.[54]


Later, one of Iron Fist's and the Black Panther's enemies, Nightshade, resurrected the Black Dragon in the hope that they could control and use it against the Black Panther. She set the dragon on a mission to capture Panther's U.S. State Department handler, Everett K. Ross. However, the Black Dragon had plans of his own. Instead of capturing Ross, he switched bodies with Ross, for his own purposes. When this was discovered by the Black Panther, the Panther set out to destroy the Dragon's eggs. Not wishing to engage the Panther directly, the Dragon confronted Iron Fist, restored the power of his iron fist by using a small favor borrowed from the Dragon's gods and creating an imbalance in his psyche that would brainwash Iron Fist into fighting the Panther. By a narrow margin, the Panther was able to render him unconscious, which helped restore him to his right mind. The Dragon then battled both heroes directly and was ultimately defeated.[33]


Sparrow and Fooh nursed Danny back to health, and Fooh used some of K'un-Lun's forbidden technologies to forge metallic fists to compensate for the loss of his chi, and sent him to confront the spirit of his mother.[70] The two of them reconciled and together with Sparrow and Fooh, the three of them went back to New York to finally confront the One.[71]


Rand excelled at training his body to become a living weapon, but he still wanted more. The August Personage of Jade suggested he attempt to become the Iron Fist, a challenge that lead to a near-fatal battle with Shou-Lao, an undying dragon. Upon besting the dragon and gaining his mark upon the chest, Danny entered a chamber where Shou-Lao's heart was kept. Upon plunging his fists into the fiery substance, he pulled them out, glowing with the power of the Iron Fist.


When he concentrates, Danny can harness and channel chi, or spiritual energy, as weapon or a method of healing. When focusing his chi into his fist, he can make it super powerful and amplify its force, along with making it immune to pain and injury. He can also use it to fire destructive blasts.


Just over a month after Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returned to punch people around with his magical, glowing fist in Season 2, Netflix has officially canceled Marvel's Iron Fist. "Marvel's Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix," reps for Netflix and Marvel told Deadline today.


While Misty is operating in Chinatown, she consults with a detective from the local precinct, and he commiserates with her on how they both keep having to deal with these superpowered people -- the people with glowing fists down there and the super-strong and bulletproof Luke Cage back on Misty's turf in Harlem.


DEGGANS: On the surface, Marvel's "Iron Fist" is a clunky story about a rich kid who goes missing when his plane crashes in Asia. He returns to New York as a martial arts master with the ability to summon great power through his hand, the iron fist. But first he's got to convince the receptionist at his dad's corporation that he's that long-lost kid.


DEGGANS: As bad as "Iron Fist" is in plot and pacing and acting, star Finn Jones is seriously overmatched here. One of the most troubling things about "Iron Fist" is that Danny Rand is the classic white savior. These are white characters, usually male, often misfits who find their true calling by coming to an environment filled with people of color and leading them. 041b061a72
